The Crying Book Tag

It doesn’t take a lot for me to cry, so when I saw this tag, I knew it was perfect for me. I will cry over anything and everything – I’m just very emotional okay! Lauren over at Narrative Paradise created a tag talking about all the books that made her cry, and I thought “hey, me too!” – so let’s see what books made me cry!

The Rules:

  • Answer all the prompts with a book that made you tearful (on the inside counts)
  • Link back to the original post
  • Tag as many people as you want
  • Drink some water

foreign film cry: a book that was both beautiful and sad


I was a sniffling, snot filled mess by the end of this book. All of the emotions, culminating at the end, sent me over the edge and I was sobbing! But the story is quite beautiful and I loved it so much, but be warned, this book will make you cry! I didn’t expect to cry as hard as I did, but I definitely cried, and I’m tearing up thinking about this beautiful story.

horrified wail: a book where everything went wrong just when things were going right


If you’ve read this book, you will understand why this fits here so perfectly. I really thought I was going to get away with reading this without shedding a tear. Until the author stabbed me in the back and IT DIDN’T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY! God I cried so hard. It was such a silent screech at the beginning too then it turned into full on cursing and tears. It was very dramatic and I’m still traumatized.

dry-eyed shock: an ending that didn’t give you the closure you needed

This is the definition of an open ending. I thought, after everything we had been through, that I would have found the answers I was looking for. LOL – JOKES ON ME. Yeah, that did NOT happen and I’m still MAD ABOUT IT. I’ve debated writing to the author asking her what happens, but I doubt I’ll get an answer.

childhood wound: a book that related to events in your life


I had a lot of moments when I was shouting “ME TOO” in my head. My obsession with music being put aside because of other people. Having someone I care about attempt suicide. The fear and unknown of graduating high school without a “plan” and feeling lost. This book was very relatable and I shed a few tears as I nodded along, agreeing with a lot of what I read. It was definitely heavy…

exhausted tears: a book you were hyped about that you ended up hating


I DNFed this book – it was so bad. I could actually cry tears of sorrow at the fact that I even tried to read this book, it was so bad. And everyone was raving about it, the reviews were so positive, I was so excited to read it. Except I hated this book and I still don’t understand what people were saying, because this was a disaster wrapped in a marketing ploy.

Those were the books that made me cry! And honestly, there’s enough I could do a part 2, 3, 4 maybe even 5. I really do cry a lot!

I’m tagging Alexa @ Writing the Universe – feel free to tag yourself though and let me know if you decide to participate!
